Things to do in Gosau, Austria

The Gosau ski resort is part of the famous Dachstein West Ski Area in Salzkammergut. With 54 ski runs itself and access to a further 140km of downhill pistes of the Dachstein West resort, a Gosau chalet is an ideal ski resort for intermediate skiers and snowboarders due to the wide yet testing pistes and vast amounts of backcountry. The extensive ski lift system also gives you wonderful access to the pistes of Abtenau, Bad Ischl, Krippenstein and Rassbach from a Gosau holiday rental.

When the snow has melted, Gosau doesn’t become a ghost town until the snow returns in November or December, instead, the town becomes the haunt of walkers, mountain bikers and rock climbers.

The kitchen was well equipped, with lots of fires to light if cold. Bedrooms all very comfortable but bring own bedding and towels! All bathrooms are downstairs but not a big problem, apart from creaky stairs in the night. Outside are fantastic views over the valley to rocky alpine mountains behind. We went summer skiing on the Dachstein glacier (an hour by car)and to the Hallstaten salt works - both trips were superb. The local village of Abtenau is 10 mins away with two good supermarkets. You can also arrange riding lessons just down the hill. Highly recommended and great value!

Lovely peaceful sun-trap in the back garden. Great food and good value at the restaurant in the village 5-10 min walk away. With all those steps it is cheaper than gym membership. Well placed for alot of what the area has to offer.

Bowl of fruit and Prosecco in the fridge is a nice touch, plus the personal welcome from the owners. Local Spar about 9km away which stocked pretty much everything we needed. We went up the Donnaberg cable car when it was open on a beautifully sunny day, and walked back down the mountain home. Has a hilarious Thursday night at the local hotel which had traditional Austrian dancing, which called for audience participation at times! A truly peaceful location to stay in the summer - thank you
